Solution

The correct option is B

Statement 1 and 2 are correct and statement 2 is the correct reason for statement 1.


Hydrogen has only one orbit, and it can accommodate a maximum of only 2 electrons. Hydrogen atoms have one electron each, so it just needs 1 extra electron to fill its outer-most orbit.

Thus hydrogen can form only one bond.
